Our co curricula program enables students to grow as individuals while exploring their passions, interacting with different cultures, being of service to others and experiencing new activities. After School Activities include sports, academic extension, drama, music and technology. In addition to this, school trips such as Model United Nations (MUN) and the International Award (IYAP) and Community Service Programs offer students opportunities to participate in field trips to domestic and international destinations.

Surabaya European School students have been participating in Model United Nations (MUN) conferences for the past three years. We would especially like to introduce this programme to younger students as there are very limited opportunities for students our age to participate in conferences especially in Surabaya and Indonesia in general. Through this initiative, we would also like to continue to develop relationships with other schools, as well as create an opportunity to share what we have learnt and be able to debate with students from different schools, and encourage young students from as young as eleven to socialise and broaden their perspectives and views on our world.
We hope that we can provide a useful and memorable experience to fellow students, not only to speak up on their own, but to solve problems- improvise for the future. We believe that through MUN, students will gain skills and recognition, additionally MUN proves helpful for important decisions such as applying to schools in the future.
Our mission is to host the first MUN conference in Surabaya, which will be accomplished by secondary students, and cannot be completed without the support and participation of other schools. We do not need students with MUN background, per se, as we only need students with fluent English, as our goals are to encourage everyone to get into MUN as these opportunities are limited in Indonesia.
STUDENT DELEGATES AND CHAIRS PERSPECTIVES OF SESMUN
Two delegates and two Chairs were interviewed about their different points of view and experiences for the SESMUN 2018 Conference held on the 15th and 16th March at SES.
Delegates wanted to participate as they were keen on trying something new. Both delegates agreed that they learnt alot from this experience as this debate helped them overcome their fear of speaking and so became more confident about speaking up and improving their debating skills. Furthermore, one delegate commented on how they very much enjoyed the opportunity to talk about issues of the world, and how they could be solved.
Senior students who chaired the conference commented that it was quite difficult at the beginning of the conference to get the delegates to speak up and be confident in sharing their ideas. However, it was momentous when the delegates were learning and participating more actively in the debate, which was something that this chair thought was very admirable.
Therefore, both the delegates and the Chairs deemed that this conference was a success!!
